Cat by Sabrina WhiteIt’s easy to add a new pet to your household!

The adoption fee includes:

  • Microchip – Permanent ID
  • First Vaccination – Cats: FVRCP; Dogs: DHLPP (You must finish boosters and Rabies vaccination at your veterinarian.)
  • Spay/Neuter – at select vet hospitals
  • Pet License – (Available only for animals living within city limits.)
  • Cats only:  FeLV/FIV test

If the shelter’s staff determine that you have chosen a puppy or kitten that is too young to be spayed or neutered, there is an additional $75 deposit that is refundable when you present proof of spay or neuter to the shelter.

Take a look at our current adoption fees. 

Kittens in giftA cautionary note about pets as gifts:

It’s admirable to want to give a pet a Forever Family for the holidays; however, giving pets as surprise gifts often leads to abandoned pets.  A pet is a big commitment, so it is important for the future pet owner to be part of the decision and select his or her own companion.

If you want to give a gift to a friend or someone outside your household, consider donating to the shelter in his or her name.  If you have a family member who has always wanted a pet, try giving pet-related items as his or her “open” gift and then coming to the shelter together to select the newest member of your Forever Family.
